Part-Time Employment.
Guichard, Gus; And Others
The employment of community college instructors on a part-time basis provides the opportunity for students to study under outstanding instructors whose primary employment may be in industry or in other postsecondary institutions and permits colleges to respond better to community needs with the financial resources available to them. Along with these benefits, however, have come a corresponding number of problems. Although legislation in 1972 attempted to delineate provisions of law concerning the employment of certificated personnel in community colleges, it left questions with respect to the employment of temporary and part-time personnel. Inappropriate or inconsistent language in existing law must be clarified. In addition, opinions differ concerning the proportional benefits which part-time instructors should receive, especially in areas of tenure, salary and fringe benefits, and participation in campus affairs. Appended is an analysis of data collected by surveying 69 California community colleges as to their employment of part-time faculty. Of the 52 districts responding, 43 employ more than half of their faculty on a part-time only basis. The average district estimate of the cost of providing pro-rata pay to part-time faculty is a 5.5 percent increase in budget expenditures for faculty salaries. (Author/NHM)
